Prop Betting Expert
Prop betting expert Stuart Durst gives his top prop bets to consider for NBA Playoffs action on Sunday, May 15. Check out his top play for the hardwood action below.
- Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) Over 34.5 Points (-120) at DraftKings
- Maxi Kleber (DAL) Over 0.5 3PM/Jae Crowder (PHO) Over 0.5/Cam Johnson (PHO) Over 0.5 3PM (-130) at DraftKings
Giannis Antetokounmpo (MIL) Over 34.5 Points
Giannis is seeing some of the highest volume & usage of any player left in the playoffs. He’s taken 25+ FGA in every game this series, going over this number in his last four games. While he started out slow on the road, Giannis was just missing shots he normally does not (also expecting some free throw regression). That being said, this is it. It's Game 7, all the marbles on the line and without Middleton, Jrue and Giannis are going to continue to see extremely large usage. If he’s going to keep taking 25+ shots and getting to the free throw line 10+ times, then sign me up. The Celtics are going to do everything in their power to limit Giannis, but the volume he’s seeing is just too hard to ignore. He’s hit this in three straight articles for us, let's make it four.

Maxi Kleber (DAL) Over 0.5 3PM/Jae Crowder (PHO) Over 0.5 3PM/Cam Johnson (PHO) Over 0.5 3PM
Maxi Kleber has been a great postseason bet thus far. He’s shooting 48% from beyond the arc (28-58), and is consistently closing games playing pivotal minutes as the stretch big. Maxi has 1+ 3PM in 10 of 12 playoff games, averaging 2+ 3PM. He’s locked in for 25+ minutes, and with Luka Doncic being the absolute center of attention, he should get a couple more opportunities. As for Phoenix, Crowder and Johnson have both been dependable guys that should benefit from the home crowd. Johnson provides a reliable offensive spark plug off the bench, and has 1+ 3PM in 12/12 postseason games. Crowder started the postseason in a shooting slump, but he now has 1+ 3PM in every game this series, averaging 2.5 on 5.2 attempts.
